On Saturday, June 15, the Grand County Habitat for Humanity will host its 12th annual Habitat Hobble. The event is Habitat for Humanity’s major local fundraiser for the lumber, nails, drywall and other items needed to build houses.
Again this year, the Hobble will offer two fun run circuits, a 5K and 10K. Both runs kick off at 9 a.m. at Cooper Creek Square in Winter Park. The 5K course runs north on Lion’s Gate Street, loops around Grand Park and returns back to Cooper Creek Square. The 10K course runs north on the bike path west of US Highway 40, crosses over at the intersection at Alco Plaza and returns along the gravel Fraser River Trail back to Cooper Creek Square.
The Hobble is a dog-friendly, family friendly event and includes a finish line party with food, live music by Brad Pregeant and Tight Like That, and a silent auction including merchandise and vouchers for dining, lodging and recreational opportunities. Join the fun run and say hello to Brandon and Amanda Antonio, who soon will be moving into their new home in Hot Sulphur Springs, the 10th Habitat house in Grand County.
Participants are encouraged to register in teams of five. Teams who raise funds exceeding their registration fee will compete for the 2013 Team Spirit Trophy.
